As a result of the geological situation in the Bavarian Forest prevails a basic lack of water, a water tank at Frauenau and Zwiesel was built in the years 1976 to 1983, which is fed by the rivers Little rain and deer creek that the uninhabited area near the Czech border between Falkenstein and Rachel spring. M³ over the water intake tower up to 15 m of water for the purpose Association far away water supply provided Bayerischer Wald available annually, which includes the counties of Cham, Deggendorf, Dingolfing-Landau, Freyung-Grafenau, Passau, Regen and Straubing-Bogen.

The 70.5 meters high over low dam consists of a core of stony clay seal with a central clay-concrete-wall which is air- and water-side flanked by beds of rock rubble. At the time of its completion, it was up to 86 m above the foundation to provide the highest dam in the Federal Republic, and he is still the highest dam.

More About Germany

Germany? Before the beginning there was Ginnungagap, an empty space of nothingness, filled with pure creative power. (Sort of like the inside of my head.)And it ends with Ragnarok, the twilight of the Gods. In between is much fighting, betrayal and romance. Just as a good Godly story should be.Heroes have their own graveyard called Valhalla. Unfortunately we cannot show you a panorama of it at this time, nor of the lovely Valkyries who are its escort service.Hail Odin, wandering God wielding wisdom and wand! Hail Freya, hail Tyr, hail Thor!Odin made the many lakes and the fish in them. In his traverses across the lands he caused there to be the Mulheim Bridge in Cologne, as did he make the Mercury fountain, Mercury being of his nature.But it is to the mighty Thor that the Hammering Man gives service.Between the time of the Nordic old ones and that of modern Frankfort there may have been a T.Rex or two on the scene. At least some mastodons for sure came through for lunch, then fell into tar pits to become fossils for us to find.And there we must leave you, O my most pure and holy children.Text by Steve Smith.
